Dotty for You Blog Hop!

Welcome to a very special blog hop featuring the Close To My Heart special offer, the Dotty for You paper pack! I made two projects for my mother-in-law's 75th birthday: a "celebrate" banner and a guest book for the suprise birthday party we threw for her. (She was definitely surprised!)

If you're already hopping, then you should have arrived here from Dawn's blog and will head to Wendy's blog after checking out my projects.
These little My Creations mini banners are so much fun! I used the Cricut to cut the banner shapes and then used my 2" circle scallop punch for the polka dot circles (each one is the back side of one of the patterns you see). The letters are stamped in Lagoon on Colonial White 1-1/4" punched circles with the Bohemian Alphabet. I had fun embellishing between the banner pieces with Colonial White and Sweet Leaf ribbon plus our new Baker's Twine.
My second project is a guest book made with a (retired) mini album. I used the Card Word Puzzle, Party Pennants, and It's Your Day stamp sets to decorate this album.

Thank you, everyone, for your very kind words! My MIL loves to say that I'm her daughter rather than her DIL. My mom doesn't mind sharing. ;)
